The Environmental and Natural Resources Law Clinic (ENRLC) at Vermont Law School today announced a new two-year Toxics Fellowship to provide legal assistance to communities facing toxic pollution problems. The selected fellow will manage the ENRLC’s pollution-focused “Partnership for Justice” project while earning a Master of Laws (LLM) in Environmental Law from VLS.
The Partnership for Justice, designed to provide assistance to northern New England communities, is a joint effort between the ENRLC and Toxics Action Center, a nonprofit organization that assists community groups with organization, outreach, media, and strategy development. As part of the project, the ENRLC will provide legal analysis and advice, and may lay the groundwork for litigation.
The deadline for fellowship applications is March 15. To be considered for the fellowship, applicants must hold a juris doctor (JD) degree from an American Bar Association (ABA)-accredited law school.
